With the end of the year fast approaching we felt that there might be a few more surprise trailers dropping for Boxing Day. But we got to open one present a bit early this morning with our first real look at the upcoming Hellboy reboot.
Initially, the Hellboy reboot was not received well due to the lack of Guillermo del Toro not continuing the story from Hellboy 2: The Golden Army but what won us over was the first look from the new Hellboy and part-time Stranger Things Sheriff, David Harbour via Twitter earlier this year. While it is hard to imagine anyone but Ron Perlman as Red the new trailer that dropped today is making us warm up to the idea.
With the movie only a few months, the new trailer that dropped this morning is cutting it a bit close but it does give us a good look at the new film. While trailers aren’t always representative of the final film we can see humour and action are still very much a part of the reboot. While no Abe Sapien we do know there will be some Lobster Johnson and we do get a look at Milla Jovovich playing the villain in what seems to be a punk rock/USA in the UK kind of feel film.
You can watch the full trailer below but make sure you tell us what you think. Are you excited for the Hellboy reboot? Do you wish that De Toro wrapped up the original trilogy? Are you buying a copy of Hellboy: The Corpse for someone for Christmas (seriously it’s pretty good and a cheap present). Tell us in the comments down below!
